Farm Management



Howard has been with Equivet Australia as farm manager since February 2012. His quick wit keeps all entertained and his skill and dedication have overseen many developments in the farm infrastructure. Visitors to the breeding centre will see many improvments in the landscaping around the barns.

With a background as marketing manager in the automotive industry Howard understands the importance of presentation and customer service. He also worked for a considerable time as a sales executive for a radio station so the outdoor life has been a career change which he seems to enjoy.

Howard is vice -president of the Pittsworth Show Society and in this capacity gives many hours of service to the community. He also works part-time at Pittsworth Primary School as groundsman. Howard lives on a farm in Southbrook, breeds red heeler dogs and grows lucerne.




Rowan has had experience in many rural industries having begun work as a jackeroo in Central Queensland. He also has experience in landscaping, contract mustering, a technical officer for the Therapeutic Goods Adminsitration, hay making contractor and has also worked as a horse transport driver. So he brings a great deal of experience to his role in farm management at Equivet Australia. More recently Rowan has been developing his own horse transport service and manages to tie this in with his Equivet duties.

Rowan maintains his interest in landscaping and assists his wife Annie who is secretary of the Pittsworth Landcare Association. Rowan, Annie have a son Toby and daughter Katie  who were both employed last season in care and husbandry of the mares at Equivet Australia. The family lives on a farm at Mt Tyson and recently participated in a tree planting project with Landcare in the Pittsworth district.

Rowan is a keen horseman and plays polocrosse when his transport duties allow time.
